Voyager Sopris Learning® pleased to announce the release of the complimentary app The Learning Zoo, which is now available to users of the We Can Early Learning Curriculum, Second Edition, in the iTunes® App Store from Apple®.

With this new app, students can access The Learning Zoo games and activities directly from their iPads. The Learning Zoo is the web-based component of We Can, a program developed by renowned early learning expert Vicki Gibson, Ph.D. This digital application includes fun, colorful lessons and activities with character-driven content to extend learning from classroom instruction.

Available in English and Spanish, The Learning Zoo provides games and activities that reinforce recognition of shapes; colors and color words; numerals and number words; skills for sorting, classifying, counting, and establishing one-to-one correspondence; and foundational knowledge in phonological awareness and emergent writing.

"We are pleased to extend the reach of this online tool by providing access through the iPad, empowering students to practice whenever and wherever possible."

  • Joey the Jackrabbit's Match Letters and Sounds Game
  • Gifford the Gorilla's Counting Game
  • Upton the Pig's Sorting Game
